DELL PowerConnecT
6200 series Switches
The PowerConnect™ 6200 series is Dell’s most High Density
advanced switching product line, offering advanced The PowerConnect 6200 series will offer versions with 24 and 48 ports of 10/100/1000BASE-T Gigabit Ethernet.
switching capabilities including high density, Delivering significant rack density, the PowerConnect 6200 gives users the flexibility to maximize server and workstation
high performance stacking and 10Gigabit Ethernet connectivity in a 1U form factor. Up to 576 servers and/or clients can be connected in a stack of 6200 series switches
capabilities scalable from the small business to help provide the maximum density, flexibility and manageability.
to the Enterprise Edge.
High Performance Stacking
The PowerConnect 6200 series supports high performance resilient stacking up to twelve systems, which allows
increased throughput to be added as needed without affecting network performance. With each switch supporting up to
232Gbps in switch capacity, the customer can have almost 3 Terabytes of capacity in a single stack!
10 Gigabit Ethernet
The PowerConnect 6200 series switches support up to four 10 Gigabit Ethernet uplinks for connectivity directly to 10GE
routers, enterprise backbones and data centers.
Advanced Layer 3 Capabilities
The PowerConnect 6200 series supports advanced Layer 3 routing and multicast protocols to help reduce congestion and
manage traffic in the network. The PowerConnect 6200 series supports frequently used LAN routing protocols such as
RIPv1/v2, OSPFv2/v3, VRRP, IGMP, DVMRP and PIM.
Advanced QoS
The PowerConnect 6200 offers flexibility in Quality of Service (QoS) by giving network administrators the ability to
prioritize time-critical network traffic based on a variety of user-defined criteria. Administrators can expedite traffic
based on L2 or L3 information, such as IP ToS, and provide greater control over traffic flow within the network.
Advanced Security
Support for L2-L4 Access Control Lists (ACLs) on the switch allows the user to perform deep packet inspection. 802.1x
port authentication offers both single and multiple host access. Further security is provided through Denial of Service
(DoS) Attack Prevention, whereby the switch can protect against common network attacks, such as Blat, Land, Smurf,
Ping of Death, Xmascan, Nullscan, Scan SYNFIN, in addition to CPU attacks, such as VLAN flooding, TCP SIM, TCP port
scan, IP address Spoofing and MAC address spoofing.
IPv6 Ready
IPv6 is version six of the “Internet Protocol” that has been in development for over 20 years. IPv6 has been designed to

address IP address limitations of previous version of the Internet Protocol, enabling an increased number of unique IP
addresses for broader scalability worldwide now and in the future.
Value and Flexibility

10GE modules shown (Modules optional)
ThePowerConnect 6200 series offers additional value because the unique modular design allows you to upgrade to
advanced stacking or 10Gigabit Ethernet only when you need it. Plus we offer further flexibility and value with the
optional modules that allow for either 10Gigabit optical or CX-4 copper interfaces, or both, based on your needs.

need. Instead, we apply our world-class process
management and “no excuses” culture to deliver what
customers today most need – flexibility and repeatable
quality. That’s absolute execution. That’s Dell.
Assessment, Design and Implementation Services
IT departments are continually challenged to evaluate and
implement new technologies. Dell’s assessment, design and
implementation services can restructure your IT environment
to enhance performance, scalability and efficiency while
helping to maximize your return on investment and minimize
disruption to your business.
Deployment Services
System deployment is a necessary evil that plagues nearly
every organization. You must deploy new systems to help
improve performance and meet user demand. With Dell’s
deployment services, we help simplify and speed up the
deployment and utilization of new systems to maximize
uptimethroughout your IT environment.
